The name of the new powerful Dragon-type attack for Pokémon Diamond and Pearl has been announced in the May issue of CoroCoro. The contest was announced in the January issue, where the statistics for this attack were revealed.

  • Name: りゅうせいぐん Meteoric Swarm
  • Attack type: Dragon
  • Base power: 140
  • Effect: Sharply lowers Sp. Attack (two-step reduction)

It is yet unknown whether the attack will be learned by a variety of Pokémon by means of TM, as is the case with Overheat in the Generation III games. Another possibility is for the attack to be exclusive to a legendary Pokémon, similar to Deoxys' Psycho Boost.
